On Ditching desktops for portables: The way forward?:

I agree with Druck. It is all about applications and productivity today. With mobile devices like the vyenote I nought recently I get the best of both worlds, would I want it. I can use Vista business edition and have VirtualAcorn for the things RISC OS is good for.

Take a look at [link]

On Select nets 1,000th subscriber:

How predictable: I got modded down. It's symptomatic for the state of the RISC OS market.

Look how vulnerable we are; when a developer runs into a train we have a serious problem. Hope this will not happen to the few that keep the little software we have alive.

But then again; they get older too and will eventually die, hopefully of old age.


PS related to this thread a song of good old doctor Hook & the Medicine show springs to mind: the freaker's ball which has some lines that say " the greatest of the sadists and the masochists too are screaming please hit me and I'll hit you". That's the state of RISC OS today!

I don't see why you all let yourself being provoked into these discussions by these kind of articles. I think the Drobe editors are getting pain in their bellies of thier hilarious laughters when they read what effect they sort.

Just wait and see what comes and (maybe just like I am more and more) when it's not worth it anymore you can completely turn to the dark side one day.

Cheers boys and girls

On Vigay: I was told to remove my Firefox 2 tutorial:

If people keep behaving childish like this RISC OS will soon become the huge dinosaur it sometimes already seems: shot in the heart but taking ages before it's brain realizes it is dead!

Great! :-(

On RISC OS 6 to power Select 4:

in reply to moss:

the thought crossed my mind too. But having completely lost intrest in Select why should this regular attempts of ROL to provocate Iyonix users lead you to completely leave. Just ignore the OS for obsolete hardware and be happy :-)

  • What should be NetSurf's priority?
    Development work on the open source NetSurf web browser project will once again be funded by Google as part of the internet giant's Summer of Code scheme. NetSurf has been accepted into this year's GSoC, which pays students to develop open source software during their holiday, under the guidance of a mentor. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on various improvements. What do you think the NetSurf team should be focusing development on?
